Cozy Nights In: Planning The Perfect Movie Night
So, as the holiday season is on the horizon; more evenings will be spent inside, getting cozy. An evening in the house with your family is also a great way to spend quality time with one-another, save some money for Christmas, or a rainy day, and ensure you’re making core memories that don’t cost a fortune. A firm favorite across all generations is movie night; a chance to get snug and enjoy an old movie you all love, or watch something new together. And, there’s always ways to elevate the evening into something truly special.
Whether it’s you and your partner, the whole household, or you’re inviting close friends and family over too; it’s a great time to make the most of the cozy season, and snuggle up together. The following are some tips and ideas for anyone wanting to host the ultimate movie night at home, so grab a notebook and start making a list!
Soft And Cozy
Whoever is going to be there to enjoy the movie, will want somewhere to sit, or curl up, and get comfortable. Therefore, it’s always worth looking at your seating; especially if you’ve decided to invite guests over. Freshen up those fabric sofas and chairs, or invest in the best leather conditioner to ensure a sumptuous surface to sink into. Add in some extra cushions, blankets, and throws for added warmth, and create a space that everyone can dive into.
Floor cushions or bean bags are great options for the kids; chuck them next to the sofa and include quilts or throws so that everyone feels together and snug. Make sure seats are around the screen, and nobody’s going to block anyone’s view! You don’t get cozier than a cinema space at home!
Delicious And Moreish
It wouldn’t be a movie night, without the snacks, drinks, and food! Popcorn is an obvious and great choice; you can have fun with the flavors as a family, and creating those tasty treats can be something to enjoy beforehand. Cover all bases and get a good mix of sweet and savory options. If you want to spend a little more; get matching snack bowls, popcorn holders, and cups; these can be reused every time you watch a movie together.
People can fill their individual bowls and cups with a mix of their favorite foods, or perhaps they’re loyal to just one. For something more substantial; why not add some pizza to the mix. You don’t have to order one; you can again, have some family fun by making your own, adding your favorite toppings, and saving some money in the meantime.
Silly And Fun
The movie choice can be a challenging part. Seasonal favorites are always a win, but, if you’ve all watched Home Alone 10 times already, you’ll probably want something new. Fun and comedy family movies are ideal; if they can make people laugh, everyone will reach the end of the night smiling. The most exciting thing will be the experience as a whole, especially for the kids; have fun!
